If you’re a young black woman who’s feeling depressed, and you’ve taken that courageous step towards seeking professional help, but you still feel like something is missing, this group may be for you.
I’m a 27 year old Black Woman who’s new to LA, and I’m in therapy. I’m in no way a mental health professional myself, but I’ve learned many coping mechanisms and skills that I’d love to share with other Black Women who are in therapy. I’d also love to learn from the experiences and advice of other young women who share both my battle, and my hue.
One of the first things I was taught in therapy was related to isolation. The idea that hiding away from the world, somehow makes it stop. As an introvert, isolation came naturally for me, it was comfortable for me. But I no longer want that type of comfort. And I’m hoping this group will help all of us remain accountable in TRYING (emphasis on trying, baby steps are acceptable) to be social and getting a little sun on our melanated faces. Overall, I’m aiming for this group to be a safe place where young Black women can discuss our issues, share our goals and accomplishments, and to form a sisterhood that will take us all to the other side of depression. All young, black women are welcome, fat, skinny, sex workers, trans women, disabled, introverted...ALL!
